New Airport Opens in Greytown
Incentive Travel reports that the new airport in Greytown is open.
A new airport has opened in San Juan del Norte (Greytown), on Nicaragua’s Southern Caribbean coast, providing a new connexion to the capital Managua. The new Greytown Airport currently has a 1,200 metre runway, suitable for small planes carrying up to 19 passengers, but there are plans to extend this shortly by 300 metres more to accommodate bigger planes with up to 46 passengers. Local carrier La Costeña has already started using the new airport, offering one hour flights from Managua twice a week.
The new Ometepe airport is close to complete.
Costa Rica has lots of internal puddle jumper flights. You can, for example, fly to Quepos or Tamarindo, from Alajuela (SJO). Both are popular tourist destinations. This get there in an hour or less option makes a lot of sense for tourism.
